I'm very surprised about Norton's lead. I've always found it to be a resource hog and never had a positive experience with it......
I will have to agree. I work as tech support tech at an ISP and Norton Internet Security causes more issues than anything with the exception of malware. The verdict is still out on the 2010 version however. I haven't run into any problems with it thus far.
Since the 2009 version Norton av programs have become some of the lightest on resources.

I used to run with Norton until a few years ago. I then switched to Kaspersky, but for the past couple of years, I have used the free edition of Avast!, which I know is just AV and not a full security suite. Given the choice, and the fact that I have had zero problems with Avast!, it gets my vote as a full security suite (even though I would have to pay for it).

F-Secure's GUI is very simple. I like it.

Does anyone use G Data?

I voted the Avast! Security Suite, but I prefer combination of:

Microsoft Security Essentials
Comodo Firewall
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
SUPERAntiSpyware

That's what I have running on my laptops.
